Woman Beaten to Death Black Males Fail in Duval County


We focus ondomestic violence during certain months of the
year but we should more often point out the symptoms so that
those who are being abused, can recognize such and get out of
the relationship.
Brandy Marine Stewart, 23, of McIntyre Court in Brunswick
was at home last Sunday when Marlin Dwayne Tootle, 36
knocked on her door after they had argued over the telephone.
Brandy was holding her 20-pound child in her arms as she
opened the door but that did not stop Tootle from punching
her in the face. But the beating did rot stop at the punch in
Marlin Dwayne Tootle, 36 the face. He continued to beat her and when the police
arrived, she was unable to move her legs. She was in a life-
threatening condition after the attack and was taken to the Brunswick Southeast Georgia
Health System Hospital where she died from her injuries on Thursday.
Tootle was originally charged with aggravated battery, aggravated assault and cruelty
to children. The charge of murder was added after Stewart's death. He has been jailed
without bond. This was Brunswick's sixth homicide this year.


Three Charged in

Toddler's Death
-L ir 'L


April Worthy, 22 Brittany Worthy, 22 Sammie Lee
Worthy, Jr., 21
A Lake City mother of a 2-year-old and an 18-month-
old apparently trusted April Worthy, 22, to care for her
children while she was out of the city. It appeared that
April was in charge of caring for the children and was
being assisted by Brittany Worthy, 22 and Sammie Lee
Worthy, Jr., 21. However, on Saturday night, it has
been reported that April beat the toddler, resulting in
bruising and punctures of the skin. Police were called
when paramedics were called to the home and found
the toddler having trouble breathing. The child was
taken immediately to Shands in Gainesville and died
the next day.
After much discussion with adults living in the home,
it was determined that all three were responsible for the
death. April and Britany have been charged with one
count of first degree murder and one count of aggravat-
ed child abuse. Sammie has been charged with one
count of second-degree murder and one count of aggra-
vated child abuse. They were arrested Thursday and
ordered to be held without bail.

Schools at a Rate of 23%
By Dan Evans, The Florida Star, The Georgia Star


Dr. John H. Jackson, center, President & CEO of Schott Foundation with Jacksonville
city and state leaders at conference to take aim at poor graduation rate for black males.

The report of Duval County School Board Superintendent Ed Pratt-Daniels
being rated as just-shy of "highly effective," is still ringing in conversation
throughout Duval County. The concern is the fact that there are still failing
schools and the graduation rate of the Black male is at risk.
A report prepared by Dr. John Jackson, entitled "Yes We Can" shows American
public schools fail over half of the nation's Black male students. State Senator
Tony Hill finds this unaccepted and has taken up the mantle to do something.
The Schott report found that between 2007 and 2008, forty seven per cent of
black males graduated on the nationAl level; 37 % in the State of Florida and 23%
in Duval County.
Dr. Jackson, CEO and President of The Schott Foundation for Public
Education, documented the performance rates and provide ways to improve pub-
lic education for Florida's young black men. Dr. Johnson, in a focus group
explained that education starts in the cradle and continues throughout life. The
focus group included members of the Jacksonville NAACP education commit-
tee, President of 100 Black Men of Jacksonville, as well as church and commu-
nity leaders, The challenge was to come up with a plan to address the pit falls that
cause young men to go off course and ways to get them back on course.
Emphases were placed on having a good curriculum, excellent teachers, proper
resources, and community involvement. Dr. Jackson suggested a student recov-
ery plan that at the time of inception would involve the student for two to three
years.
The concern is that education in Florida is a civil right, and 16 year olds are
allowed to drop out of school. Senator Hill stated that is not acceptable. It was
suggested that organizations like those 'in attendance, help to get 'paid' mentors
to help the students. It is imperative that action is taken to change this, said the
senator. Broward County, Pinellas County, Palm Beach County, and Duval
County are the worst performing districts in the state. "YES WE CAN" calls on
the federal government and states to ensure that all students have a right to an
opportunity to learn, not as a matter of competition, but as a civil and human
right and is therefore highly recommended to begin immediately.


Job Openings Rose in July
After two months of declines, according to the Labor
Department, job openings rose in July. The number of
jobs advertised rose by 6.2 percent to 3.04 million.
This is the highest total since April when an increase
occurred because of the census hiring. Even with the
increase, total openings, according to the report, remain
below the 4.4 million that existed in December 2007
when the recession began. There was a peak in
November 2009 of 6.3 but more than the 1.8 unem-
ployed when the recession began.
The lack of hiring is what is causing the recession
feeling, said an economist at Credit Suisse.
The industries that show the biggest increase in job
openings is education and health services and leisure
and hospitality.
There is still some major differences. While white
unemployment only went up from 8.6 percent to 8.7
percent, black unemployment went up from 15.6 per-
cent to 16.3 percent.


Lloyd Gets a Hair Cut
Yes, it is the R&B crooner known as "Mr. Long Hair
Don't Care." Lloyd. The singer has been growing his hair
for more than ten years but has decided to cut off his locks
to provide a hair piece for a financially disadvantaged child
suffering from long-term medical hair loss. He is hoping
this move will inspire others to donate.

VERIFICATION


VOTE WHY?


Why should African Americans, other minorities, women and all civic and human rights advocates vote...
because people were beaten, jailed, killed and otherwise suffered for over two centuries for this fundamen-
tal right.

Below are a few other reasons to Vote:

S The struggle and assassination of of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the words of his 1963 March on
Washington speech should encourage you: http://www.mlkonline.net/video-i-have-a-dream-speech.html
* To honor the legacy of those who were active in the Civil lights Movement, with organizations such as
the NAACP, SNCC, CORE, SCLC and others.
* On June 21, 1964, three young civil rights workers, a 21-year-old black Mississippian, James Chaney, and
two white New Yorkers, Andrew Goodman, 20, and Michael Schwerner, 24 were murdered near Philadelphia,
Mississippi. They had been working to register black voters in Mississippi during Freedom Summer and had gone
to investigate the burning of a black church. They were arrested by the police on trumped-up charges, imprisoned
for several hours, and then released after dark into the hands of the Ku Klux Klan, who beat and murdered them.
It was later proven in court that a conspiracy existed between members of Neshoba County's law enforcement
and the Ku Klux Klan to kill them.
* Medgar Wiley Evers was born on July 2, 1925 and was murdered on June 12, 1963 and was an African
American civil rights activist from Mississippi who was buried with full military honors at Arlington National
Cemetery after being assassinated by Ku Klux Klan member Byron De La Beckwith. Evers' life, his murder, and
the resulting trials inspired protests as well as numerous works including music and film.
A number of nameless and faceless Freedom Fighters could and should be included in this brief timeline describ-
ing oppression, persecution, and discrimination in regards to voting rights. In all of these cases those affected
were not passive victims, rather they fought back with whatever means they had.

Similarly, much of this short summary is presented in the form of legislative and legal milestones. But all of
those laws and court cases were the direct result of constant struggles and mass political pressure. In no case did
benevolent legislators enact civil rights laws or magnanimous judges rule against discrimination without being
forced to do so by we the people.
The stories of the freedom struggles and resistance to oppression continues to fill books, and civil rights muse-
ums and institutes across America. Though museums, books and documentaries alone cannot document the
details of civil rights battles, but it is crucial to remember that from every act of oppression grew many forms of
resistance and every victorious milestone on the Freedom Trail was achieved with blood, sweat, and tears.
The two main issues addressed by the.Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s were ending the "Jim Crow" system
of segregation and winning the right to vote for African-Americans.
The Freedom/Civil Rights Movement of the sixties did not spontaneously spring up out of nowhere, nor did it
disappear when its work was done, but the Movement continues and is as important today, as compared to cen-
turies of struggles for human freedom and civil rights.
The struggle for Voting rights in America over the past two centuries has been a battle and we can not allow neg-
ative news media, individuals or groups to side track us from exercising our right to vote. In The state of Florida,
nearly 200,000 persons lost the right to vote between 1995 and 2005 because of the state's Constitutional ex-felon
disenfranchisement ban and over 5 million others across this great nation are banned
and many of them for life.
I am urging those who live in, or planning to visit the states of Georgia, or Alabama
before the November 2010 elections, to go visit the below listed institutions, as a
d mentoring source, a wake up call and a method of supporting.

More than 10,000 members of America's first
Greek-letter organization for African-American
college women descended on to St. Louis,
Missouri for the sorority's 64th biennial conven-
tion. Hundreds of the worldwide members of
Alpha Kappa Alpha painted the city pink and
green, kicking off the event with a "global walk"
starting from all over the world to the St. Louis
America's Center.
The highlight of the convention, which honors
sisterhood and service, was a visit from Mrs.
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of Liberia and
Africa's first woman elected as a head of state.
The members from Gamma Rho Omega
Chapter, Jacksonville, FL were recognized for
their work with economic awareness in the city
of Jacksonville with the "Excellence in
Economic Empowerment Community Award".
This effort was lead by President Mesdames
Bonnie Atwater; Vice President Mary Brown
and Economics Committee Chairman, Cristia
Sasso.
Alpha Kappa Alpha was founded in 1908
by 16 women on .the campus of Howard
University in Washington. The organization has
grown to 250,000 women in more than 950 chap-
ters worldwide. The theme for 2010-2014 is
"Global Leadership Through Timeless Service."
This will require Alpha Kappa Alpha to work
SMART. Each initiative is Strategic,
Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and
Transferable for enhanced impact. Please visit

/ was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach



No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the beginning of our
work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf and that includes keeping
you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet. We have been
working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is to listen to
people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have 19 community centers and
teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners,
helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have already gone to people.
affected by the spill. We have committed a $20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate
claims, including lost incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism recover and bring people
back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams will remain in place for
as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific experts on the
impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support over 10,000 jobs in
the region and people here are our neighbors. We know we haven't always been perfect,
but we will be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal.
We will do everything we can to make this right.

LOCAL C*e h l SECTION-B


50th Anniversary Commemoration of Ax Handle Saturday


Story by Marsha Dean Phelts, Photos by Michael R. Phelts
16 year-old Marjorie Meeks Brown who was Secretary of
the Youth Council and ran for her life on Ax Handle
Saturday, broke through the glass ceiling in 1996 when she
rdse to become the first female postmaster of Atlanta Post
Office System.
Ensuing events from Ax Handle Saturday catapulted Landon
L. Williams who was 23 years-old to becoming the youngest
person in the history of the International Longshoreman s
Association in all of the United States to be elected president
of a local ILA. Williams led union members in a wildcat
strike at the docks on Monday, August 29, 1960 that left
seven ships unloaded at the port.


Saturday, August 28,
2010 marked the fiftieth
anniversary of a chilling
day in Jacksonville History.
Fifty years later new com-
ers to Jacksonville or those
who were too young to
remember the racial and
political climate of the day
frequently ask, "What was
Ax Handle Saturday all
about?"
Sixteen year-old
Rodney Lawrence Hurst
and 100 of his peers were
the key trigger in the infa-
mous day that history
recorded as Ax Handle
Saturday. Nearly 50 years
later Rodney Hurst was
destined to tell the story in
his superbly written award
winning book, "It was
never about a hot dog and a
Coke!" A personal account
of the 1960 sit-in demon-
strations in Jacksonville,
Florida and Ax Handle
Saturday.
In this article I will
briefly describe what took


place on Ax Handle
Saturday even though I was
not there. I too was 16
years-old, but at home
under a week long frighten-
ing lock down brought
about due to the eruption of
a race war against the brave
NAACP Youth Council
members and the leadership
of the NAACP.
In 1960 there was a
racially operated
Jacksonville for whites and
for blacks. During these
segregated times not a sin-
gle black-African-
American held an elected
office. Downtown
Jacksonville was the epi-
center of business, the only
role that Blacks played in
downtown business was as
spenders-period. Because
of the local NAACP led by
Rutledge Pearson, change
was coming to
Jacksonville, even before
passage of the 1964 Civil
Rights Act. On the day
fated to become Ax Handle


Saturday, the NAACP's
Youth Council held a sit-in
at the lunch counter at the
W. T. Grant's Department
Store on the North West
corer of Main and Adams
Street. Youth Council mem-
bers were well respected,
clean cut, and bright mind-
ed young people who were
leaders among their peer
group. President of the
NAACP Youth Council was
Rodney Hurst, a 16 year-
old entering his freshman
year at Edward Waters
College.
The Youth Council's
routine sit-in had instantly
turned into a war zone as
they were,pounced on by
hate mongers. Klansmen,
segregationist and racist
were handing out ax han-
dles and baseball bats like
politicians hand out fliers
on Election Day. These
instruments' were used in
bloody attacks against the
Youth Council and any
black-African-American in
sight, old men, old women
and any black person who
couldn't escape as rapidly
as the kids could run.
As word of what was
taking place reached the
black part of Ashley Street,
a gang of young school
guys known as the
Boomerangs ran downtown
to help their schoolmates
and neighbors out.
The loose-knit


cordially invites you to its

Boomerangs were not
members of the Youth
Council and had not prac-
ticed the principles of non-
violence. Reaching town
they wrenched the ax han-
dles and baseball bats from
the hands of the Klansmen,
segregationist and racist
and beat them back. As the
Boomerangs beat back
attackers, Youth Council
demonstrators and other
black shoppers were able to
escape the vicious mob.
Half of a century has
passed since the day that
came to be known as Ax
Handle Saturday. So many
valiant and courageous
mentors who took an active
stand for equal civil and
economic rights have
passed on. But what a glo-
rious sight it was 50 years
later to see activists of that
day: Mrs. Mary Ann
(Rutledge) Pearson, Mr.
Lloyd. Pearson, II, Richard
McKissick, a.k.a. Mayor of
Ashley Street; Mr. Wendell
Holmes, Mrs. Willie F.
Dennis, Mr. and Mrs.
Walter White, Dr. Alvin
White, Rev. Landon
Williams, Mr. and Mrs.
Alton (Gwen) Yates, Dr.
Arnett Giradeau, Dr. James
Henderson, Spencer
Meeks, his sister; Marjorie
Meeks Brown, Rometa
Graham Porter and nearly
1000 others who came
downtown 50 years later to
hear first hand discussions
on what happened on Ax
Handle Saturday, August
27, 1960.
Thanks Rodney L.
Hurst, Sr., Isiah Rumlin and
the Jacksonville NAACP
for hosting one of the
grandest four day forums,
discussions and film festi-
vals to bring about healing.
Though tears still flow
when those who were there
recall the events fifty years
ago just like yesterday.
Kweisi Mfume, CEO of
the National Medical
Association and former
National President of the
NAACP was the Keynote
speaker who was intro-
duced by Adora Obi
Nweze, President of the
Florida NAACP. Excellent
speakers describe Mr.
Mfume and Mrs. Neweze's
presentations and anyone
hearing them can under-
stand why audiences wel-
come opportunities to hear
them. Because of the 50th
Anniversary forums we
were able to witness similar
stories that have been docu-
mented in film of The

By Lucius Gantt

Man\ so-called Black conimuinit\ leaders are Ilke
ghosts, Awe'le been told the\ exist but \we neter see -
them. Ho\ can \\e follow~ what someone that i; ne\er
there?
What \\e do see are titles! The media \\ ill designate
any African American with a title as a "leader".
Every preacher is a leader, every teacher is a leader
and every elected and appointed politician is a Black
community leader!
Rev. Al Sharpton and his National Action Network
recently held an event described as a Black Leadership
Meeting. The get together was described as a meeting
to "Measure the Movement". A bunch of organization heads, educators, clergy and
political puppets gathered on a stage and reportedly told a live and a TV audience
what they would do to support Black people.
Even though it wasn't Halloween, most of the people on stage seemed scared!
They were scared to stand up, scared to speak out, scared to fight for their
rights, scared to do anything that would be in conflict with the wants and desires
of the exploiters and oppressors of Black people.
Yes, they wanted to lead Black Americans but they only wanted to lead us down
the path laid out by American racists, white separatists and white supremacists.
It takes a village to make up a village!
How can you have a Black community leadership meeting if only Black
Christians are in attendance? How can you have a Black political leadership meet-
ing if only Democrats and Republicans are there? How can you have a Black com-
munity business leadership meeting and only employees are there? How can you
have a Black community media leadership meeting if there are no radical or inde-
pendent Black journalists there?
Everybody in the Black community should be able to contribute to efforts to
uplift the community and solve some of the community problems. All of us can
learn something from any of us!
However, the so-called Black leadership would have us believe that our lead-
ers are who the news media says they are.
Well, I've worked with Rev. Al Sharpton but I certainly wouldn't call him "my
leader". I know some of the politicians, scholars, educators and organization pres-
idents that were described as leaders but none of them was my leader.
Black people in American don't want to be led down the Yellow Brick Road,
we want to ride the Money Train!
As I always say, in a capitalist economic system, capital is the primary moti-
vating factor.
If you want to be a "Black Leader ", lead Black people to more jobs, lead them
to affordable housing, lead Black people to equal rights and justice and lead Black
people to better health and more wealth.
Black people want leaders that they can believe in. They want to follow lead-


ers that know where they are going. Black people want Black leaders that will tell
Black people the truth instead of telling African Americans what non-Blacks want
Black people to be told.

set. In a positively strange way it was like re-
uniting with old friends for an afternoon. The
cast was as upbeat and hilarious in person as
they are on camera. They made the contingent
gathenng of press feel right at home with a
very relaxed and easy going greenroom.
"Rules of Engagement" is a comedy about the
different phases of male/female relationships.

couple. Adam (Oliver Hudson) and Jennifer
(Bianca Kajlich), a long-time married pair. Jeff

Kalyan).
When asked about their characters and their
development over the last five seasons, each
cast member had funny as well as philosophi-
cal observations. Kajlich (plays Jennifer) has
to deal with her fiance Adam who appears not
to be the brightest guy round. Kajlich laughs,

fun for me to play." Price (plays Audrey) is by
far the liveliest of the bunch and has us laugh-
ing non-stop during her portion of the inter-
views. Her biggest question was will Audrey
and Adam have a baby this season? Price
explodes in laughter, "I've never seen a baby
really work on TV." When asked about being
on the show, Price quips, "We have the most
fun! I can't even believe that it is our job.
Every so often we're like really? We have the
most fun job."
Something new has happened with Timmy
(played by Kalyan). He smiles, "Timmy has a
love interest this season." Kalyan really lights
up when he describes what it was like to audi-
tion the actresses for that role. "I had the real-
ly arduous task of having to chemistry read
with eighteen beautiful women to cast the role
of Allison, which is the character's name."
David Spade who plays Russell explains his
character's relationship with Timmy. "In terms
of chasing girls each episode, you can think of
probable ways to do it and proper storylines
but sometimes they don't give the girls much
to do back so when someone does jokes back,
it's more fun. And bringing him into a dynam-
ic like chasing girls just helps that story be a
little richer; one more level of I'm going
through him for the girl and he's getting advice
through me and there's more jokes happening
and more things instead of just a straight one-
on-one."
Adam (played by Hudson), is somewhat of
the dumb-wit of the bunch. Hudson explains,
"I like being a dummy, I like being put into
dumb situations that I get myself into when it
comes to just blatant stupidity. I don't know if
it played as well as I thought it might when
doing it." And finally Jeff (played by
Warburton) is summed up by Warburton say-
ing, "Its fun being Jeff because he's a lot sharp-
er than he leads on. He looks to be stupid, lame
and purposely say the wrong things just to
push buttons with Audrey and loves to bully
Russell a little bit which is fun for me too
because I never was a bully ever. I always got
bullied. I was a lost kid in high school. 1 actu-
ally hate bullies but its kind of fun in the sit-
com world where it's not too serious."
